U.S. Appeals court overturns Apple's $119.6 million victory over Samsung in patent trial 2
In an interesting turnaround, the appeals court did say that Apple was liable for infringing on a Samsung patent, although no details were released. Apple declined to comment on today's rulings, while Samsung had nothing to say at the moment.
The legal victory has been a long time coming for Samsung, as Apple has generally been the victor when the two rivals have worked out their differences in court. For example, at the end of last year Samsung paid Apple $548.2 million in reference to a separate patent infringement lawsuit between the two tech titans. Samsung has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to hear its argument on that case. To get the court to hear its argument, Samsung is trying to have the highest court in the land re-visit the idea of patent law reform in the states.
A three-judge panel made the ruling that was announced today, which essentially wipes out a $119.6 million damages award that Apple won on May 2nd, 2014. That was the result of the second patent trial between the two companies. Similar to the first trial, Apple accused Samsung of illegally using some Apple patents without its permission. The difference is that the second trial featured newer Samsung devices.
